The delightful Derbyshire village of Brassington is home to this wonderful annexe cottage, Walton House, boasting rustic stonework and high, vaulted ceilings.

This lovely home from home is perfect for a small family, a couple or two couples seeking a base near to the Peak District, and within easy reach of Matlock and Carsington Water too.

Begin by admiring the dramatic vaulted and beamed ceiling, exposed stone walls and traditional stone steps, with a dining table positioned in the centre of the space for enjoying delicious home-cooked meals.

The kitchen can be found to the right, offering a compact but well-equipped area to rustle up your go-to dishes, including a combi microwave, electric oven and hob, and fridge.

Take the open-tread wooden staircase up to the first floor to discover the heart of the home, the sitting room, where a woodburning stove adds warmth and ambiance to this relaxing setting, with sofas to unwind on and a TV to enjoy, along with Velux windows amidst the Apex beams and ceiling to illuminate the space.

Back on the ground floor in the dining room, take a few steps down into a hallway leading to the bedrooms, comprising of a double room and a single room, the latter also benefitting from a trundle bed to form a king-size bed if requested, perfect for accommodating two couples.

Freshen up before or after your outdoor adventures within the shower room here too, with a walk-in shower enclosure, basin and WC.

Take advantage of warm weather and make use of the outdoor patio area, with furniture for alfresco dining and a lawned area perfect for little ones to enjoy.

Nearby amenities can be found in the charming market town of Wirksworth, just over four miles away, with visitors spoilt for choice for things to do, from The Ecclesbourne Valley Railway running through one of Derbyshire's unspoilt valleys, the spectacular StarDisc sitting high above the town illuminating the constellations at night, and the National Stone Centre and Mount Cook Adventure resting on the edge of the town, all well-worth visiting.

An exciting day of activities awaits guests at Carsington Water, a beautiful lake with opportunities for a range of watersports including rowboat hire, kayaking, stand-up paddle-boarding, windsurfing, and sailing.

Cycle hire is also available for cycling around the 3-mile family-friendly route or the full 8-mile off-road reservoir circuit, while keen anglers can look forward to a peaceful afternoon on the lake fishing for rainbow and brown trout.
